ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FROM THIS YEAR
- The Ready, Set, Remit! challenge is now complete. PTA units that remitted per capita dues through channels for 30 or more members by October 31 will receive a certificate from California State PTA. No application required. Each unit PTA must adhere to the due dates set by their council and/or district PTA. Councils and districts set their own due dates in order to meet the State PTA deadlines. When sending in your remittance to your council and/or district PTA, please allow additional time for them to process and mail checks to the state PTA office. Remittances of “per capita” should be forwarded by every PTA at least monthly, and sent to your council and/or district PTA. “Per capita” means per person dues, and is the portion of membership dues not belonging to your PTA. The unit (school) PTA remits to the council PTA (or if out of council, to the district PTA). The council PTA remits to the district PTA. The district PTA remits to California State PTA, who remits to National PTA.
- PTA Unit Spotlight Awards recognize outstanding programs organized by PTA units. They also provide the opportunity to share your successful membership and outreach programs with other PTA leaders throughout the state at a special convention workshop. The application process for Spotlight Awards is now completed. See a list of winners.
